Supporting Community & Voluntary Groups in Cookstown
March 1, 2018
We recently awarded Workspace Community Fund grants to six community projects in the Cookstown area where we have an office; O4O; Superstars Club; Positive Steps; The Hub, The Rowan Tree Centre; and Lissan House Trust.
The Workspace business model sees us operate commercial businesses which generate surpluses, part of which are used to fund projects in our local area such as our local recreation centre and After School Club. We also provide support directly to local community or voluntary groups to enable projects that otherwise just wouldn’t happen through our Workspace Community Fund. This reflects what Workspace is about since it was founded – helping the local community in a practical way.
We are delighted to be able to offer this support to community and voluntary groups in areas where we have offices such as Cookstown. Through our training and employability company Network Personnel we offer support to individuals and families aged 16+ helping them access training, develop their skills and find and sustain employment.
